gun violence prevention task force in the house. this group was set up by nancy pelosi last month to be the voice of congressional democrats on reform. and it tells you something about the diversity of the democratic party on this issue, right, to be able to have nancy pelosi, who has the exact position on guns that you think she has, to have a nancy pelosi drafting leadership help on this issue from, among others, john dingell, a former board member of the nra, a former a-plus rated nra legislator. but for all of congressman dingell's nra bona fides, if you think that is the only thing worth knowing about him, you are missing a big part of the picture. six days after the shootings atlanta month, congressman dingell's wife, debbie dingell published a very personal op-ed in the "washington post." "when i was about to start eighth grade, my father almost shot my mother. it was another of their many ugly fights. i got between them literally and tried to grab the gun. i never forget that night. my calling for help, but the police not coming. my parents were important people in town. m
of this horror. >> the superintendent then read a letter written to nancy pelosi. >> i would just like to share with you as one final thought a fourth grade student, congresswoman nancy pelosi sent you a letter, and her name is ava. she says i am a fourth grade student in newtown, connecticut. after the shooting in my town i sent a letter to the president asking for help from congress to change the gun laws. it got a lot of support from americans, but then i had to take it down because of my same. what everybody wants you to do is ban the high capacity magazines and for everyone to use guns safely. >> joining me now for an exclusive interview, newtown superintendent, dr. janet r robinson. thank you for joining us. >> nice to see you, lawrence. >> ava's note said what everybody in newtown wants is for you to ban semiautomatic weapons, and i'm sorry to say that is not apparently what everyone in newtown wants. we were just talking in the last segment about patricia clark, who is a high-ranking nra official who lives in newtown. and as i think you know, newtown in the past has had a fairly large c
was on the police officer of the u.s. house this morning. with former speaker nancy pelosi and many others, and the second amendment is part of that, as is the first amendment to speak about what we would like to do and readdress agreements. look at what the president provides. it's troubling to me that the president says if congress doesn't do what i want, i'm iffing to issue an executive order. you know, the power to make laws starts in the house and senate, and that's where we'll take a look at this, but, again, many my district and in many others overwhelmingly people in kansas are not looking for new laws out of washington. they're looking for more involvement in their communities and their families, at the state level rather than the washingtonian law. >> new york state is taking action today. the toughest gun laws in the country. again, if things are not done at the federal level, guns move across state borders very, very easily. doesn't there need to be some federal law? >> there are obviously plenty of laws, and that's one concern i do have is the failure to enforce current laws.
administration, and the overuse and abuse of pr prop-ganda to try to appeal to people and i talk about nancy pelosi where she was double fisting babies and wearing they will like wonder woman bracelets. binge, binge, binge, questions costs and constitution? the babies, the babies. and it's a feckless use of beltway theatrical staging, to invoke for the children immunity by hiding behind them. >> sean: by the way, michelle, got to tell our kids, whatever you do don't go bang, bang, if you do they're in trouble, suspended out of school. michelle malkin, as always, thanks for being with us. >> you, too. >> sean: and look how egregious the president's power grab was, 23 executive actions he is going to take without the consent of congress and former attorney general michael mukasey tells us if obama is within his legal rights. the constitutional showdown next.

are the guys who have to lead. they have got to get nancy pelosi and harry reid to bring along democrats, and we've -- >> harry reid is tough on this. he's pretty pro gun. >> well, he's going to have to listen to his constituents. i think he will. i think you're going to find in all of these places, when i talk to people around the country, there's just enough is enough. you see people who have been big gun rights advocates all of a sudden saying, well, we can't keep doing this. >> mr. mayor, thank you. >> you're welcome. thank you for having me. >> coming up, manti te'o's, a twitter war for the record books and for the ridiculist. ♪ you know my heart burns for you... ♪ i'm up next, but now i'm singing the heartburn blues. hold on, prilosec isn't for fast relief. cue up alka-seltzer. it stops heartburn fast. ♪ oh what a relief it is! >>> time now for the ridiculist. tonight, we're adding the twitter war between donald trump and deadspin. this week, deadspin broke the story about the notre dame linebacker who had a fake girlfriend, and trump was apparently imp pressed. he tweeted th
and nancy pelosi in december of 2007. he said the economy is slipping, i need a stimulus and they worked with him to give him the kind he can sign. then 2008, the terrible crisis and it was a very partisan thing in which the bush administration got more support from democrats and republicans in the final vote. then comes the election of barack obama and mitch mcconnell's announcement that his number one agenda item is to defeat president obama. we have, i think, a productive 2009 and 2010 and then in 2010, a group gets elected in the house, in particular, we don't believe in governance. not totally pessimistic. the way to go we've seen in the last three major issues in the house, a split within the republican party where main stream conservatives of the bob dole variety have aligned with the majority of democrats. they've been opposed by a majority of republicans in the house, but not of the whole house and speaker boehner, to his credit, has been allowing a coalition to come together and i hope what happens is that the main stream conservativism of the republican party continue to fight
to it. god it is a mess and we have to fix it. when you hear people like nancy pelosi saying the fiscal cliff was not enough on the revenue side. you hear, you know, many politicians chiming in. howard dean, for example, saying in december that the truth is everybody needs to pay more taxes. we're not going to get out of this deficit problem unless we raise taxes across the board. the rich can't solve the problem. i guess that is where i'm going with this is, it seems like, especially from what you're saying susan, everyone will have to pay more taxes to get out of this. >> i actually don't agree with that point. i don't agree with howard dean either. we're not looking more middle class tax increases. the president has been pretty firm on that. we're looking closing corporate loopholes. some people are starting to talk about high frequent financial transaction tax for people that are trading for less than a minute in a position. melissa: none of that will get us there. >> that could raise $350 billion, if you add that with tax cuts could get 1.2 the president is talking about. there are
nancy pelosi's speakership. they're playing -- it's the long play. >> i have a question for you. what do you think the polls would have shown before "madd" was organized to have a campaign against drunk driving about whether you could have an open container in your car or whether it's wise to drive after having a couple shooters in a bar. or whether you're going somewhere and somebody in the back seat has a six-pack. what do you think the polls would say about that? >> all of that matters. and i think what the -- undertone of what the president was saying, he has to marshal this kind of cultural battle. it's not automatic. we can sit here in midtown manhattan where everybody would agree with us. but outside of here, not everybody does. in fact, there is an amazing statistic that shows that 23% of people in our poll call the availability of guns as the cause of gun violence compared with 37% who pointed to parenting and 37% who talked about public culture. >> but rick, i've got to bring this up too. i love that you're bringing up counterintuitive polls. but you're saying polls show that 5
: you're right to call it a gimmick, and i've never heard you agree with nancy pelosi. >> tucker: it's a wonderful gimmick, i endorse, why not? why are we paying these people if they're not writing budgets. >> clayton: they can't cash a paycheck unless they do their job. number one, they don't know if it's constitutional, you stop congress getting paid as a result of it. the second part, it could be a gimmick and we'll have to relitigate this in three months ago frustrates american businesses and they don't know what to do. >> alisyn: will the national nightmare ever stop? >> you would think they'd be thinking beyond the next quarter. we just said our debt rating downgraded, right? >> and here is a new fox news channel poll. and the question was, is government spending managed carefully or out of control? hmmm, what do you think people said mostly? >> i would love to know the 11%, who are you. >> alisyn: 83% of people think it's out of control and that obviously is up from two years ago, and up from three years ago, and on and on. >> clayton: really, who are the 11%? please, if you a
